Note: This Fundraising Drive was initiated by a CAREFY volunteer. We need to Donate to the primary arm of the Philippine Government that supports the most vulnerable Filipinos!
Below is a short Profile of Department of Social Welfare and Development from their website. Everyone already knows them, so we condensed it.
The Department of Social Welfare and Development envisions all Filipinos free from hunger and poverty, have equal access to opportunities, enabled by a fair, just, and peaceful society.
To lead in the formulation, implementation, and coordination of social welfare and development policies and programs for and with the poor, vulnerable, and disadvantaged.
1915 – The Public Welfare Board (PWB) was created. Its functions were to study, coordinate and regulate all government and private entities engaged in social services.
1991 – The passage of Republic Act 7160 otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991 effected the devolution of DSWD basic services to local government units.
2005 – The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) approved the DSWD’s Rationalization and Streamlining Plan (RSP) on January 28, 2005 for implementation over the next five years. The RSP emphasizes the Department’s shift in policy, functions and programs in line with its steering role.
Please support our DSWD which is the Primary arm of the government supporting the poorest and vulnerable Filipinos. They accept Food, Hygiene Kits and Cash Donations.
